thats a bold statement. you cant blame it on everyones driving lol. no doubt some people drive like crap but let me explain something.

i recently traded up from a 11 wrx to an 11 sti. SAME exact thing was happening to me in that SAME exact spot the OP is showing in his picture. it seemed like no matter how hard i tried to enter certain parking lots and gas stations that had a small berm, my wrx would scrape. it got to the point where i went and bought the oem lip spoiler to hide it. i was disgusted. i drive for a living, so not knowing wtf im doing is out of the question.

on a side note, this does NOT happen in my sti. i dont know if the suspension is that much stiffer that i clear **** easier or what. but this cannot be a coincedence. the op is not the only one ive seen with this issue. im starting to wonder if subaru should have had a recall. i even had someone ask me if my wrx was leaning to one side. i couldnt tell. but sometimes you being the owner doesnt want to admit things are wrong with your shiny new 28k car
